*Session includes Continental Breakfast and a copy of Evan’s latest book The Ten Minute Principal, Free Up Your Time to Focus on Leadership, First Edition.
This workshop will challenge you to reflect on why you do what you do, how you do it, and the shifts you can make to be a more effective leader and get different results.
Evan embraces inclusive, empowering, and innovative leadership. In this workshop, you’ll partner with Evan and other leaders for a day of reflection, growth as a learner and leader, and as a result, you’ll develop new ideas that enable you to take immediate action in your school.
Evan will model the power of story and how to work as a team allowing you to create ideas and strategies you can immediately put to use. Participants will work in small, collaborative groups and explore ways The Ten-Minute Principal can support their leadership role and construct pathways of communication and collaboration that can build efficacy and a growth mindset among staff and students. Together, we’ll dive deeply into ideas that can support your leadership role. The goal will be to develop a school with skilled teachers that prepare students to be creative problem solvers and leaders who know how to free up their time to positively and purposefully interact with staff, students, and parents.
As a result of the workshop, participants will be able to:
Learn about Evan’s six pillars of leadership and then dive deep into key focus areas.
- Understand how the Six Pillars of Leadership guide leadership in Education
- Reflect on how time is spent and if shifts need to be made
- Learn how to positively impact culture and climate
- Discuss how leaders can support or inhibit dynamic environments
- Improve relationships with staff, students, and parents
- Bring innovation and creativity to your school or division
- Develop a school community where leaders see themselves as ongoing learners and promote as well as participate in professional learning opportunities
- Let go of some practices that may hold you back and embrace the new, allowing for a better understanding or personal vision, mission, and leadership
